Captain Zero Loses Again: the Affordable Care Act
A footnote to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision largely sustaining the Affordable Care Act. Governor Parnell, you may recall, dragged the State of Alaska into the court challenge to the Affordable Care Act:
The governor emphasized that the decision to sue is more about Alaskans’ liberty interests than about health care legislation. “Health insurance coverage is not in the public interest if it’s achieved through a constitutional short-cut that expands federal power at the expense of states’ rights and the liberties of citizens,” he said.
You should have listened to WC, Governor. You lost again. When you put those Teabaggery Blinkers on, you are consistently wrong.
Remember the beluga whales in Cook Inlet? You got that wrong.
Remember the ACES battle and your Chicken Little approach to oil industry taxation. You lost that, too.
The evidence in support of classification of polar bears as an endangered species continues to mount. You’re going to lose that lawsuit, too.
Now WC (ahem) has nothing bad to say about paying money to lawyers. Even in stupid lawsuits. But this string of losses should make you consider whether you are tilting at the right windmills (scroll down to Chapter VIII).
